Learning sight words is such an important skill for beginning readers. Goodness gracious though! Who came up with some of the spellings of our common sight words? Why does it have to be so confusing? We teach these phonics rules, and then throw more than a hundred words at our students that don’t follow those rules. It definitely makes teaching sight words challenging, but it doesn’t have to be boring.
I wanted to find a way to make learning sight words a little more exciting, so I created some No Prep Sight Word Games for us to use.
The first thing I did was to assess my students on their sight word knowledge. I really like the Dolch Sight Word lists from A is for Apple, B is for Blog. This gives me an idea of which sight words my students still need to master.
Then, I can differentiate my games, and have my students play with the words that they still need.
I have included 10 different No Prep sight word games using the 220 Dolch Sight Words.
Most of the games are available in both color and black and white. This gives you the option of printing in color, and laminating to use over and over again, or just printing in black and white for your students.
I will be using some of these games in a whole group setting, but most of them will be perfect for small groups and a sight word center.
